Default which constraint to use?

hi everyone i'm currently designing a v22 osprey and i wasn't sure what kind of constraint should i apply to the propellors. i need a constraint that will allow the propellor to stay on the engine but be able to spin freely also. tks.

just parent the propeller to the engine. no need for constrains.

i would, group the propellers to itself, then parent that group node to the engine. leaving the propeller transforms clean always just incase.
